From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Yale University Press
Abstract: 

Osler accepts bringing the negatives. There will be many illustrations, but his opinion is that it will add to the interest of the book, and help the sale.


Date: 
March 27, 1913
From: 
Osler, William
To: 
Yale University Press
Abstract: 

Osler will have many illustrations for his lectures. He asks the Yale University Press if it would be possible to get the book out in a form similar to the "Dechlung und Deckler der Zeit" of 1911, particularly for the illustrations. Thinks that it would make an attractive feature and help the sale, which should be large and justify an extra outlay. Request for an epedeascope for his lectures, as he is bringing the photos and gelatine films.
